Shakespeare in Children's Literature looks at the genre of Shakespeare-for-children, considering both adaptations of his plays and children's novels in which he appears as a character. Drawing on feminist theory and sociology, Hateley demonstrates how Shakespeare for children utilizes the ongoing cultural capital of "Shakespeare," and the pedagogical aspects of children's literature, to perpetuate anachronistic forms of identity and authority.

A volume in the Poets on Poetry series, which collects critical works by contemporary poets, gathering together the articles, interviews, and book reviews by which they have articulated the poetics of a new generation. In The Skin of Meaning, Aaron Shurin has collected thirty years’ worth of his provocative essays. Fueled by gender and queer studies and combined with radical traditions in poetry, Shurin’s essays combine a highly personal and lyrical vision with a trenchant social analysis of poetry’s possibilities. Whether he’s examining innovations in poetic form, analyzing the gestures of drag queens, or dissecting the language of AIDS, Shurin’s writing is evocative, his investigations rigorous, and his point of view unabashed. Shurin’s poetic practice braids together many strands in contemporary, innovative writing, from the San Francisco Renaissance to Language Poetry and New Narrative Writing. His mentorships with Robert Duncan and Denise Levertov; his studies at New College of California, where he was the first graduate of the epochal Poetics Program; and his years of teaching writing provide a rich background for these essays. San Francisco provides the color and context for formulations of “prosody now,” propositions of textual collage, and theories of radical narrativity, while the heart of the book searches through the dire years of the AIDS epidemic to uncover poetic meaning, and “make the heroes heroes.”

Shakespeare enjoys an enduring curiosity. While epilogues are rare in his work, the ones we have can bring us the authors perspective in a more direct fashion than is the case with the plays they conclude. Since we are naturally curious about Shakespeares thoughts and attitudes as a working actor and playwright, might not these moments of stepping out from the story to address the audience directly give us some direct insight into what he was thinking and what he was like as a person? In The Kings a Beggar: A Study of Shakespeares Epilogues, author, poet, and actor David Young explores the liminal, in-between space of the epilogue in Shakespeares plays. Inspired in part by his performance with Patrick Stewart in a production of The Tempest, Young offers a chronological survey of the nine plays with epilogues and draws a conjectural portrait of Shakespeare as a working dramatist. Written both for experts and for the general reader, The Kings a Beggar is succinct, lively, and informative, and it is the first and only study of Shakespeares epilogues as a group. Though the point is not that Shakespeare himself spoke these epilogues (though in some cases he might have), the epilogue in Shakespeares plays represents those times when he felt the necessity of direct address to the audience and broke his usual habit of ending his plays inside the story. Exploring this liminal space between play, actor, and audience can reveal fascinating insights into Shakespeares mind and art.
